In preparing your article you are requested to follow these
guidelines as closely as possible, particularly with regard to
figures and the reference list. This will minimize copy-editing and
will hasten the publication process.
format is WORD.
The title page should include:
The title set in bold (initial word only is capitalized).
A shortened version of the title for running headers (only if
the title itself cannot be used as short title: it should not
exceed 70 printed characters, spaces included).
Initial(s) of the author(s) first name followed by last
name(s) (please specify if you want first name to appear in full).
Affiliation(s), with complete mailing address. If
affiliations are more than one, please clearly identify them by
superscript numbers that must be appended to the author names
A maximum of four keywords.
A summary. The summary, not exceeding 200 words, should be written in one paragraph, completely self-consistent (with no figure, table, equation or reference quotations) resuming concisely the aim of your paper. Make sure to indicate e-mail address of corresponding author.
The text can be divided into first, second and third-level
numbered sections. Titles of sections must be numbered and
appear in bold characters. Note that British English spelling is
preferred (colour, flavour, behaviour, artefact, fibre,
metre, centre, etc.), but if you use American English, be consistent
Use hyphens consistently and avoid unnecessary ones, note that
compound words beginning with non or self are
hyphenated. The words: figure(s), equation(s) and reference(s) may be
abbreviated as fig(s)., eq(s)., ref(s). only if they
are not the first word of a sentence. The word table is always written
in full. Latin expressions i.e., e.g., et al., versus
(vs.) should appear in italics.
Equations are numbered on the left with arabic consecutive
numerals in round parentheses.
For usual units, use the standard SI abbreviations; unusual
units may be written in full at least when mentioned for the
Word users should make clear distinction between characters
that may be easily confused, for example I (upper case i), l
(lower case l) and number 1; O (upper case o) and 0 (zero); v (lower
case v) and ν (lower case Greek ν); x (lower case
x) and Χ (multiplication sign).
There are 3 main types of footnotes:
- Introductory footnotes in the title page (referring to new addresses of authors, address of corresponding author, ...) indicated by asterisks.
- Footnotes to text material, which should be kept to a minimum, and which should be designated by a numerical superscript: 1, 2, 3, etc. They should be placed at the foot of the relevant page.
- Footnotes to tables, which should be indicated by superscript lower case letters and placed in a list immediately below the concerned table.
- Footnotes cannot be modified in proofs, so we recommend to be definitive.
The acknowledgments section should follow the main body of the
paper and should precede any appendix. Appendices
should be labelled A, B, etc. , eventually with a title in bold
and table captions
Each caption should be written as a single paragraph without
indentation. Note that table captions are to be typeset in
italics while figure captions are in roman. Figures should be numbered
with arabic numerals and tables should be
numbered with roman numerals. All the figures must be cited in the main
text accordingly. Make sure that figures are
referred to in the text in the right numerical order.
Remember that the final quality of illustrations depends on the
quality of the original artwork. We normally use figures
as submitted, it is therefore the author responsibility to ensure that
they are legible and technically correct. The final size
of the figures should not exceed full-page width. All details of the
figure should be visible and labelling legible.
Bitmap format such as TIFF, BMP, PNG and JPG are acceptable as
well as the EPS format. Bitmap images may present
quality problems in the production of the printed version of the
journal due to low resolution. For this reason black and
white graphics files should have a resolution of at least 600 dpi and
grey-scale graphics files of at least 300 dpi.
Colour figures are accepted in the electronic version of the
journal. A resolution of at least 300 dpi is required.
If you are intending to use previously published figures, or
downloaded from internet, you must obtain written
permission from the Copyright holder before using them in your article.
References are quoted with arabic numerals in square brackets.
Literature citations of periodicals , books ,
conference proceedings , web resources  and preprints  should
be organized by strictly following the examples
given below. Journal names should be abbreviated according to the list
of the Serial Title Word Abbreviations of the
ISDS (International Serial Data System) if available, otherwise full
journal names are preferable.
